  • Just a quick line to let you know about a great guitar festival held here in the UK, organised by musicians for the music - "L'Esprit Manouche". It has the sound of Django Reinhardt as its starting point, (the incredible Django being the most famous of the Manouche tribe of gypsys), and we bring the very, very best players of this and associated styles from around the world to Moseley Park in Birmingham for a weekend of musical magic. This years gig will be happening over the weekend of the 9th and 10th July - and there is another incredible line up! Confirmed so far - Dotschy Reinhardt, Lollo Meier, Moreno, Dominique Pierard & Benjamin Clement, Les Doigts de l'Homme, John Etheridge, the Rosenberg Trio and more! There are very few music events that have the heart and soul of this festival - the press have described it as " Two days of absolute heaven", "Difficult to imagine a better weekend", "As perfect as possible!" - I call it a guitarists wet dream of a weekend! Check out the website at for all the info or get back to me if you think I can be of any help. Keep Smiling, Dave Alexander telephone 0044 (0)121 249 2303 website email

  • Civic hall.
  • The Civic is a top quality music venue with big name bands playing there on a regular basis it is also well complemented by smaller venues such as the wulfrun and the little civic.
  • civic hall the varsity the planet- occasionally
  • Civic Hall The Planet Club, Thornley St. (indie every Fri, goth & rock/punk every Sat)
  • little civics good for up and coming bands . Big Civic has some of the best of the big bands and you can get everywhere with your ticket. Even in Local girls pants it seems. oilets are good for shagging
  • nowhere plays decent music in wolves.try the birmingham academy.
  • The one and only Wolverhampton Civic Hall!
  • NOT the Little Civic - this is where the punters pay to get in, the bands play for free and they aren't even allowed to drink their own booze in the dressing room!
  • The Little Civic's great when there's something good going on, you can pick up leaflets of forthcoming gigs from the little civic (in the town centre, kinda near the civic hall).
  • varsity is grat for up and coming bands and to promote your own my favorite band tangent (remember them cus they will be big ) started life their!! also the little civic is good for unknowen bands aswell
  • used to b Kings until they started charging £5
  • Civic and Wulfrun Halls. Everybody goes through them at some point.

  • home
  • Civic Hall, Wulfrun Hall, Varsity...
  • Varsity on Stafford st is STILL having bands play upstairs also the upstairs @ Little Civic (used to be The Tavern)
  • The civic hall has probably the worst acoustics in the country. Go and see your fave band there if you're interested in what they would sound like underwater
  • No more decent bands at the varsity thanks to the evil men at banks offices. They did not realise that the varsity was one of the best gig venues in the country for up and coming indie bands, and it had the reputation along with it. No more great bands like gomez, idlewild, gorkys, mansun, ultrasound etc...
  • civic, wulfrun, jb's, varsity, giffard
  • Outta limit club, 5 ways, lwr stafford st. Great night, great bands, you must check this venue out!!
  • The Civic - outdated 1950's hall and a good reason for extending WW2 so it could have been bombed The Wulfrun - evil child of the Civic, i.e. attached to the side of it
  • Civic Hall.
  • Wulfrun Hall
  • Wolverhampton now has a third live music venue - The Varsity in Stafford Street. It first started putting gigs on in Feb 1996 and loads of cool bands have played there since.
